two items presentation for the design of the new willie brown jr. middle school including the site plan, the exterior design the materials and finishes. we were fully briefed on how much community involvement was present in the design of the buildings. we were shown very cool computer graphics that led us on a virtual tour of what willie brown will look like. it is very exciting to see this, you know, brand new middle school come to life, at least in the presentation. the architects showed the kinds of finishes and colors that will be incorporated into the design. what i found most interesting was, one of the biggest messages about the design of the school was that it would incorporate elements of restorative practice and circle and sort of really facilitate conversation and dialogues based on this school district's emphasis on that. it was really very exciting. secondly, we discussed future agenda items for the committee and the meeting schedule for november and december. so the next meeting of building and grounds will be on monday, november 19th, at 6:00 and i really do urge my

reasonable and use some common sense here. grabbing an arm is not violence. how -- the mayor, willie brown, he was in office, officially at the time when he was an adulterer, a father of an illegitimate child, not a slap on the wrist. gavin newsom, drunk, violent, on drugs, and an adulterer with the chief of staff's wife and not a slap on the wrist. upon so how do you define this as justice. come on. this is not fair. the punishment does not fit the crime. you have to do this properly, and let this man be reinstated. it is ridiculous, the charges, and all these things that they're saying about him. let's be decent. we're a city of decency and really liberalism. you know, let's see you act on it. let's see you show what you're made of. don't fall victim to all the politics. thank -- >> president chiu: thank you. next speaker. >.members of the board, sonia -- in 1974 as a young college student i went to live in the home of a woman who revealed to me when she was 14 years old living in south of market with her mother and stepfather she saw him slap her mother twice. in the second incident she saw
